I've loved costumes since I was a tiny person, and my parents would have to deal with me having Halloween every day of the year. The love is still there, but adulthood requires a lot of time and money flow to other interests and requirements. But, I've always wanted to make myself a cool bird or gryphon costume. A dragon would be cool too, but like many birds, the long and elegant neck is not within my skill range to create at this point!
So, given the opportunity, I decided to make a crazy Vesper costume! [link]
Vesper is a character I've had for a while now (she's also a dragon) that has appeared in
. She.. uh. yeah.
So I made this nonsense entirely with exception to the 'blank' underneath, which is a resin base with hinges so the beak opens and closes as I open and close my mouth.
made the blank (she's awesome!) as I don't have a way to cast resin here, and then I sculpted and sanded and sculpted and sanded and painted and added fur and feathers and eyes and such.
I painted the gloves and carefully added all the talons.
Her shirt has fizzzzsssh on it.
This is very silly, but it's fun!
